Q HARPER (His Life, His Music- An Artist Biography)

Native Detroit performance sensation Q Harper (the eleventh of twelve children) was born Quintin Deon Harper on December 29, 1967 to William and Mary Harper. His love for music was inherited from his father as he began his performance career at the tender age of five. As the second youngest member of “The Sensational Harper Singers” (a gospel group formed by his father), Q enjoyed regularly acclaimed appearances on radio and television, often performing with his siblings at three to four churches on any given Sunday. Under the watchful and demanding tutelage of William Harper, Q quickly developed an uncanny, almost enigmatic facility with music, a language he actually prefers to what he calls “all lesser forms of communication."

Despite his incredible abilities with the acoustic guitar, piano, and writer’s pen, it is his voice, the first of all instruments, which demands and arrests the ear. Boasting a beautifully even and technically flawless tonal quality, this artist’s upper and lower vocal registers are rendered with remarkable consistency as he seamlessly moves between each mechanical height and depth—both spontaneously and upon command. Moreover, the timbre of his voice is hued by colors derived from only the deepest feelings, full of sincerity, truth, and a God-given emotional intelligence and sensual intuition. Two unquestionably perfect examples of this type of natural and emotive vocal talent are Luther Vandross and Brian McKnight, artists to which Q’s gift can be arguably and justifiably compared.

Q Harper, an inspiring balladeer, whose music comes from a time when music was original, raw and straight from the gut, heart and soul of an artist. In his music you will find a connection of old school vibes with new school flavor.

Further influences upon Q’s soulful R&B, inspirational, and funk delivery are the likes of The Isley Brothers, Phyllis Hyman, Donny Hathaway, Marvin Gaye, and Al Jarreau, with a gripping, “troubled blues” overtone reminiscent of the late Ray Charles.

In Q's hot new album titled, "ONE", featuring his hit single "Quiet Time", you can hear the power and range of his vocal abilities. There is no production or studio gloss here, just a raw and dedicated voice that captivates his audience. Whether singing on the spot in person, in the studio, or on stage his refined voice hardly needs a microphone. Q Harper is a pure talent that cannot be counterfieted.

At a time when true artists are hard to come by, one does “come by”.
